Overview

Based on the popular Nickelodeon TV series Rugrats, this is the first full-length feature animated movie to star the little tots. It's the story of diaper-clad kids, told from a baby's point- of-view, and they were one of the hottest-selling toy franchises of the late '90s. The film features a hilarious musical number in the hospital nursery, where newborns have the voices of major rock stars that include Jakob Dylan (Bob Dylan's son), Iggy Pop, Lou Rawls, Lisa Loeb, and Patti Smith, to name a few. The story escalates when self-proclaimed leader Tommy Pickles is thrust into an impossible situation with the birth of his new brother, Dil Pickles. This new kid is grabbing all the attention and won't stop crying. With the help of other toddlers Lil and Phil, Tommy decides that the baby should be returned to the hospital for fixing. They all hop on their little wagon and take a high-speed ride straight into the deep woods where they realize they're lost. Chased around by animals (or so they think), the Rugrats clan must get home in one piece. Other celebrity voices include Whoopi Goldberg and The Rocky Horror Picture Show's Tim Curry, as well as Saturday Night Live's Andrea Martin and David Spade.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The Rugrats Movie brings the inspired enthusiasm of the popular, animated Nickelodeon-network toddlers to the big screen. The film presents a toddler's-eye view of the world with the same freshness that made the show such a hit. The plotline is aimed at a slightly younger crowd than most kids' fare, though there are enough cultural allusions and in-jokes to keep older viewers awake. The post-pubescent crowd will also appreciate the numerous celebrity voices and musical cameos from the likes of Bob Dylan, Busta Rhymes, Iggy Pop, and Beck. As with other TV adaptations, Rugrats occasionally strains in its efforts to extend a twelve-minute cartoon plotline to feature length; there are numerous poop jokes, not all of the clever variety. Nevertheless, the movie was hugely successful, at the box office as well as in the minds of younger critics.
